Ah Heng Duck Rice, Hong Lim FC

Word on the wire (yes, it still comes from wires these days; in fact, more than ever) that the proprietor of Ah Heng (#02-64, Hong Lim Food Centre, 531A Upper Cross Street) is the same person that used to run Heng Gi down at the Tekka Food Centre. On hindsight, the thin sliced duck did look rather familiar.

I'm gonna have to file this Teochew braised duck as being good, but not spectacular. Even though their constant queue spoke otherwise. There was just something that was missing that could have made this memorable. I did enjoy the flat rice noodles with their clear tasting broth though even though the fried shallots were oddly, quite lacking in flavour.
